International students at Dundee University have been ranked as the most satisfied in Scotland and the third happiest in the UK.

Results from the International Student Barometer Survey ranked the university top in Scotland.

The ISB grades universities on overall average student satisfaction and surveyed more than 2.5 million students worldwide taking into account the experience for international students in areas such as learning, living, support and arrival.

More than 180 institutions took part in the recent survey, with 42 in the UK participating.

According to Wendy Alexander, vice-principal (international) of Dundee University: "This excellent result epitomises much of what we do at Dundee.

"We are a Scottish university with a global focus and our world-renowned student experience is one of the things we are most proud of."

Ms Alexander added: "Our mission is to transform lives locally and internationally.

"The education and experience these students receive at the University will not only benefit them but countless others whether they choose to go back to their own countries after graduation, decide to make here their home, or go elsewhere. They will go on to do exceptional things in their chosen fields and the links they forge will benefit us all."

Not only did Dundee come out on top in the ISB survey, it was also named the Scottish University of the Year in The Times & Sunday Times Good University Guide for the second year in a row last year. The university also reported its highest ever scores in the most recent National Student Survey and climbed five places to 180th in the latest edition of the Times Higher Education World University Rankings.
